Cocktail Wars Newport Is BACK!!!

By  |  0 Comments

Newport’s biggest bartending competition returns for a fifth season.

Hosted at The Gas Lamp Grille every Monday night for seven weeks, Cocktail Wars Newport is an exciting way for Newport area bartenders to test their chops. Sixteen bartenders enter the tournament each season and based on judges’ decisions and audience appeal, they move through successive rounds until one mixologist is named the winner.

Week One’s Contestants were:

Michelle Carson
Sheri Culver
Jonathan Edgell
Brenna Leveille

Week One Judges:

Lukas Wilner
Jessica Laudati
Joe Watt

It was a great competition, but we have to say that it was the first time that we’d seen a cocktail presentation include a meme. (Catch it at the 5.28 mark).

Catch Cocktail Wars Newport every Monday night through March 13th.
